I've re-read your post several times, and (although
I understood the last part well enough), I really
couldn't make any sense of the first section.
Were you trying to hold it on a hill using first
gear instead of the handbrake? I'm sure it's my
fault for not grasping the concept properly, but
could you explain it again please?

Sounds like you are getting screwed.
Get a hold of the salesman's boss and tell him how he is screwing you. You still may be able to work out a deal and get your jeep sometime soon.
I paid 100 over invoice plus the BS advertising fees which was 2 something. There was no dealer prep fee and I have never heard of one. If you don't want the alarm then tell them.
I would go to another dealership and see what they can do for you.
#4 of 23397 car wash????
Aug 30, 2000 (3:33 pm)
anyone brave enough to run their wrangler thru one
of those brushless car-washes? I was in a real big
hurry once and I almost went for it. Is there just
a danger of water leakage or damage to the top
Go ahead and call me lazy, but anyone do this?

Thank you for responding. I just came back from the dealership and had them remove the alarm, drop the price 150 over invoice and remove the 299 dealer prep. So I'm happy with that.
I'm picking up the Jeep tonight.
I'm really excited!!!

Skip the car wash - may not leak - but I have seen these "brushless units blow attached "things" (side moldings, antennas, side mirrors) off of other vehicles. A fabric top is just risky business - get to know your Jeep - hand wash that puppy.

I certainly would not pay for the alarm. As for the insurance discount, get the Sentry Key for about $75. This is a passive alarm and should get you your insurance discount (did for me).

There are a couple aftermarket companies that make a bar that goes across the roof between the doors. This is supposed to reduce flapping, but I can't confirm this as I've never used them. Also, some companies make an insulator that installs under the roof which is also supposed to cut down on road noise.

When I upgraded my sound, I wanted to keep the stock headunit as a theft deterrent. first upgraded the stock speakers in the dash and the soundbar to Kenwoods (from Crutchfield). This made a huge improvement in sound quality, but the bass was still not there. Then, I added an amplified bazooka tube (which I got from www.ubid.com for about $80, new). This did it. My sound is 1,000 times better and I still use the stock radio/CD player. I have an alpine, but I don't think I'll use it...too tempting to theives.
